Mansur, Kal
Toronto, ONT
Artist Statement
Kal Mansur is a visual artist specializing in acrylic/plexiglas sculpture. His work is in various collections, including the Rockefeller Foundation, Alliance Capital, Senvest Corporation, and KPMG. His work is borne out of a love of architecture and kinship with Minimalism. He deconstructs the functionality of light and space, encapsulating them in familiar yet unrecognizable objects. They heighten one's sense of colour and space, appearing to be grown, not made. The quality and tolerances of his constructions are the result of an artistic process that aspires to a kind of perfection only possible through work that is handmade. He uses readily available sheet goods, standardized construction tools, and industrial adhesives, coalescing into ambiguous objects that, paradoxically, appear to be machine-made. It is this disjuncture that most interests him, and drives him to create objects that displace the reverence given to perfectly manufactured consumer objects in everyday life.
